Women Empowerment in India: Views of M.K. Gandhi and J.L. Nehru

Neelam . (Author)

Position of women in India has remained a topic of concern since ancient times. They can be the perfect example of home makers. With their incomparable quality of calmnes of mind, they can easily handle even toughest situations. Indian women are completely devoted to their families. They're preached in the names of Goddess Saraswati, Goddess Durga, Parvati and Goddess Kali.
